Insulin Regular Human SubQ



This man-made insulin product is identical to human insulin. It is used to treat diabetes mellitus. Like other insulin products, it works by helping sugar (glucose) get into cells. It is a short-acting insulin.This insulin is usually used in combination with a medium- or long-acting insulin product injected under the skin to control high blood sugar. In some people with diabetes, insulin may be used alone or with oral diabetes drugs (e.g., sulfonylureas like glyburide or glipizide).Even with diabetes, you can lead an active and healthy life if you eat a balanced diet, exercise regularly, and take your insulin as directed. Controlling high blood sugar helps prevent heart disease, strokes, kidney disease, circulation problems, blindness, and sexual function problems.

Uses
This man-made insulin product is identical to human insulin. It is used to treat diabetes mellitus. Like other insulin products, it works by helping sugar (glucose) get into cells. It is a short-acting insulin.This insulin is usually used in combination with a medium- or long-acting insulin product injected under the skin to control high blood sugar. In some people with diabetes, insulin may be used alone or with oral diabetes drugs (e.g., sulfonylureas like glyburide or glipizide).Even with diabetes, you can lead an active and healthy life if you eat a balanced diet, exercise regularly, and take your insulin as directed.

  • See Medical Alert section.

Storage
  • It is best to refrigerate the unopened vial/cartridge between 36-46 degrees F (2-8 degrees C).
  • Unopened insulin may also be stored at room temperature below 86 degrees F (30 degrees C), but in that case it must be discarded after 28 days.
  • Once opened, this medication may be stored in the refrigerator or at room temperature below 86 degrees F (30 degrees C).
  • Discard 28 days after opening.
  • Do not freeze.
  • Discard the insulin if it has been frozen.If using this drug in an insulin pump, do not store this drug in the pump for more than 48 hours.
  • Doing so may lead to ineffective therapy and high blood sugars.
  • Do not expose the insulin in your pump to direct sunlight or temperatures above 98.6 degrees F (37 degrees C).Protect insulin from direct sunlight, heat, and moisture.
  • Keep all medicines away from children and pets.Keep extra supplies of insulin, syringes, and needles on hand.

Overdose
  • Symptoms of overdose may include headache, sweating, shakiness, increased hunger, vision changes, nervousness, tiredness, seizures, loss of consciousness.

How To Use
  • The cartridge form of this insulin comes with a Patient Information Leaflet.

  • If you have any questions, consult your doctor or pharmacist.This insulin must be injected.

  • If you have any questions, consult your doctor, diabetes educator, or pharmacist.Before using, inspect this product visually for particles or discoloration.
  • If either is present, do not use the insulin.Before injecting each dose, clean the injection site with rubbing alcohol.

  • To reduce discomfort at the injection site, do not inject cold insulin.
  • The insulin container you are currently using can be kept at room temperature.
  • Insulin may be injected in the abdominal wall, the thigh, or the back of the upper arm.Inject this medication under the skin within 30-60 minutes before eating a meal or immediately after the meal as directed by your doctor.
  • Because this insulin is fast-acting, not eating immediately after a dose of this insulin may lead to low blood sugar (hypoglycemia).
  • After pulling out the needle, apply gentle pressure on the injection site.
  • Do not rub the area.The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to therapy.
  • Measure each dose very carefully because even small changes in the amount of insulin may have a large effect on your blood sugar levels.Check your urine/blood sugar as directed by your doctor.
  • Keep track of your results and share them with your doctor.

  • If you have any questions, consult your doctor, diabetes educator, or pharmacist.
  • Avoid exposing the pump or its tubing to direct sunlight or other heat sources.This product may be mixed only with certain other insulin products such as NPH insulin.
  • Always draw this insulin into the syringe first, then follow with the longer-acting insulin.
  • Consult your pharmacist about which products may be mixed and the proper method for mixing insulin.
  • Never inject a mixture of different insulins into a vein.
  • Do not mix insulins if you are using an insulin pump.Do not change brands or types of insulin without directions on how to do so from your doctor.Learn how to store and discard needles and medical supplies safely.

Side Effects
  • Injection site reactions (e.g., pain, redness, irritation) may occur.
  • If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor or pharmacist promptly.Remember that your doctor has prescribed this medication because the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects.
  • Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects.This medication can cause low blood sugar (hypoglycemia).
  • This effect may occur if you do not consume enough calories (from food, juices, fruit, etc.) or if you have taken too much insulin.
  • The symptoms include chills, cold sweat, blurred vision, dizziness, drowsiness, shaking, fast heartbeat, weakness, headache, fainting, tingling of the hands/feet, and hunger.
  • It is a good habit to carry glucose tablets or gel to treat low blood sugar.
  • If you don't have these reliable forms of glucose, quickly raise your blood sugar level by eating a quick source of sugar such as table sugar, honey, or candy, or drink a glass of orange juice or non-diet soda.
  • Tell your doctor immediately about the reaction.
  • To help prevent hypoglycemia, eat meals on a regular schedule, and do not skip meals.
  • Check with your doctor or pharmacist about what you should do if you miss a meal.Too little insulin can cause symptoms of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia).

Precautions
  • Before taking insulin, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or to other types of insulins; or if you have any other allergies.Do not use this medication when you have low blood sugar (hypoglycemia).Before using this medication, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history, especially of: kidney disease, liver disease, thyroid problems.You may experience blurred vision, dizziness, or drowsiness due to extremely low or high blood sugar levels; use caution engaging in activities requiring alertness and clear vision such as driving or using machinery.Limit alcohol while taking this medication because it can increase the risk of developing hypoglycemia.During times of stress, such as fever, infection, injury or surgery, it may be more difficult to control your blood sugar.
  • Consult your doctor because a change in your medication or how often you test your blood sugar may be required.Check your blood sugar readings before and after exercise.
  • You may need a snack beforehand.If traveling across time zones, ask your doctor about how to adjust your insulin schedule.
  • Take extra insulin and supplies with you.The elderly may be more sensitive to the effects of this drug, especially hypoglycemia.Children may be more sensitive to the effects of this drug, especially hypoglycemia.
  • When used in children, diluting insulin before injecting is recommended.
  • Ask your pharmacist about the correct way to dilute insulin.Tell your doctor if you are pregnant before using this medication.
  • If you are planning pregnancy, discuss a plan for managing your blood sugars with your doctor before you become pregnant.
  • Your doctor may switch the type of insulin you use during pregnancy.
  • Consult your doctor for more details.This medication does not pass into breast milk.
  • Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.

Missed Dose
  • It is very important to follow your insulin regimen exactly.
  • Do not miss any doses of insulin.
  • Discuss specific instructions with your doctor now in case you miss a dose of insulin in the future.

Drug Interactions
  • Your healthcare professionals (e.g., doctor or pharmacist) may already be aware of any possible drug interactions and may be monitoring you for it.
  • Do not start, stop or change the dosage of any medicine before checking with them first.Before using this medication, tell your doctor or pharmacist of all prescription and nonprescription/herbal products you may use, especially of: other insulin products (e.g., insulin aspart, NPH), oral diabetes medicine (e.g., glyburide, pioglitazone), ACE inhibitors (e.g., enalapril, lisinopril), clonidine, corticosteroids (e.g., prednisone), danazol, disopyramide, estrogens and progestins (including birth control pills), fibrates (e.g., clofibrate, gemfibrozil), fluoxetine, guanethidine, isoniazid, lithium, MAO inhibitors (e.g., furazolidone, isocarboxazid, linezolid, moclobemide, phenelzine, procarbazine, selegiline, tranylcypromine), niacin, pentamidine, pentoxifylline, propoxyphene, protease inhibitors (e.g., indinavir, ritonavir), anti-psychotic drugs (e.g., phenothiazines such as chlorpromazine, atypical anti-psychotics such as clozapine and olanzapine), reserpine, salicylates (e.g., aspirin), somatropin, sulfa antibiotics (e.g., sulfamethoxazole), sympathomimetic drugs (e.g., albuterol, epinephrine), thyroid medicine, "water pills" (diuretics such as furosemide, hydrochlorothiazide).Beta-blocker medications (e.g., metoprolol, propranolol, glaucoma eye drops such as timolol) may prevent the fast/pounding heartbeat you would usually feel when your blood sugar level falls too low (hypoglycemia).
  • Other symptoms of low blood sugar such as dizziness, hunger, or sweating are unaffected by these drugs.Check the labels on all your medicines (e.g., cough-and-cold products) because they may contain ingredients that could affect your blood sugar.
  • Ask your pharmacist about the safe use of those products.
